About this product
- DescriptionZero's Neighbour is Helene Cixous's tribute to the minimalist genius of the artist in exile who courted thingness in his writing like body else: Samuel Beckett. In this unabashedly personal odyssey through a sizeable range of his vels, plays and poems, Cixous celebrates Beckett s linguistic flair and the poignant, powerful thrust of his stylistic terseness, and passionately declares her love for his unrivalled expression of the meaningless precious little of life, its unfathomable banality ending in chaos and death. Poised between a critical essay and a textual performance across two languages adapting Beckett's own literary vein, this book will appeal to scholars, critics and creative writers as well as students of the grey self-Sam . Its allusive intertextual insights will also prove to be of critical relevance to readers of Dante and Proust, among other literary figures, as much as to those appreciative of Cixous s own inimitable genius for dissecting the quintessence of the life and works of a neighbourly artist.
- Author BiographyHelene Cixous is one of the world's leading writers. She is the founder and former director of the Centre de Recherche en Etudes Femininesat the Universite de Paris VIII.
